Quick lift for tandam spring trailer

I found a cheap way to lift the trailer appx. 1 1/4 inches for about 15 bucks. This gave me an extra inch at the back of the NEW prop cage.

What's it called? Part number? Where did you get it? Etc.?

How hard is the switch? How long did it take? Any side effects?
You showed how high the prop and rudder are or was? Is this the photo after installation or before? Do you have the opposite photo to compared?
Thanks
George

Here is a link to them below. Picture was from after. It lifted the back of the trailer by 1 inch.
No side effects as of yet.
Took about 2 hours with boat on trailer using impact to remove nuts. I put 4 jack stands on the frame and use floor jack to raise/lower axles. You need to unbolt both sides pivot point and then the springs. Install the new triangle then reattach the pivot points.
